Welcome to 2nd Portchester Group. We were registered as a charity in 1959. As a long established and dynamic group, we run Beavers, Cubs and Scouts sections.

We are part of East Hampshire Scouts and have links with St Mary’s Church in Portchester.

The Scout Association offers everyday adventure and activity to almost 500,000 young people in the UK. It's the largest co-educational youth organisation in the world, with over 28 million members in 216 countries and territories.

Scouting is organised through The Scout Association and has a clear purpose: To help young people achieve their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as Members of their local, national and international communities.

2nd Portchester Group is working to achieve this with the voluntary help of Leaders and Parents with the support of the Group Executive Committee. Scouting is available to both boys and girls and is divided into several main sections, for more details on any of them please click on the links on the left.
